Liver, Onions, and a great new View

Hello all! I know everyone's been anxious to see pics of the new place in Jamesport. It's been a roller coaster of an experience, starting in a new place like this. The town is small (REALLY small) and reminds me of being back home in Indiana. Then I pass the bay and realize I'm about as far from home as it gets.

People here smile often, and offer friendly hellos. Before long, I'll know all the residents by name. It's strange coming to a place like this, everyone seems so familiar and yet I hardly know a soul. I know with time it'll become more and more comfortable. Until then, I'm enjoying the wonder that comes with living in a new place.

 The new apartment!

 Still some unpacking to do. Patio furniture will have to double as couches for now...

 This ^ is the view looking out of my kitchen window. No joke.
 Literally steps from my front door. Hoping summer comes quick!

Had a bit of extra time on my hands today and was able to cook my first meal in the new place! This is the first time I've cooked in nearly a week. It felt good. Really good. Just reminded me how much I deeply care about food and what I'm doing out here.

You know me, I couldn't help but document it. Just a simple lunch of liver and onions - one of my favorites, and a great way to kick things off!

 Caramelizing onions. Cooked em down with a little Peconic Bay verjus.

 Bacon in a cast iron pan, doesn't get much better than that!

 Pieces of calves liver soon to be seared in said bacon fat.

Topped it off with a slow cooked egg and some celery leaves. Awesome lunch!

*Still in the process of obtaining the apartment and plane tickets for Copenhagen. More to come on that adventure in the coming days...

About Cooking Curiously...

This is a place for food nerds to roam free. A place for me to document my tales and experiences concerning that wonderful substance known as FOOD. I find it incredible how many forms it can take, and the impact it can have on our lives. Hopefully, I can make some of those forms tangible here. The following posts will range from travel stories to new dishes and recipes, some restaurant reviews, maybe just an interesting food thought. Regardless, this is meant to be an open forum for both myself and any followers. Feel free to post and comment. Enjoy!
